The Opportunity

The broader EY US GPS practice serves federal and SLED clients. Our growth strategy focuses on being account-centric, issue-based and competency-driven. That's what differentiates EY US GPS in the government marketplace. Our portfolio of services is aimed at driving relevant, tangible results. We believe that integration fosters innovation.

When you join our GPS team as a senior manager focused on education, you will have the opportunity to be part of building out our higher education practice and to make a real difference in the higher education sector. The sector is experiencing tremendous pressures, exacerbated by COVID-19, but it also has tremendous opportunity: to redefine its business model; how it serves students; how it manages decision-making in a complex, multistakeholder environment; and how it works with both government and corporate partners to continue to be an important engine of economic growth for the country. You will have the opportunity to be part of this transformation. While building and nurturing relationships with higher education institutions, systems and statewide entities, you will also have the opportunity to work across disciplines with professionals who have broad industry sector experience and deep subject-matter knowledge. As a member of our GPS team, you will join a talented group of professionals serving in key roles advising public and nonprofit organizations on issues related to financial management, performance improvement, program effectiveness, and technology and operational transformation. Are you ready to join our team and help build a better working world?
